To increase your chances of getting a visa, you should have the first year of study in Canada paid for, have money to live in the new and expensive country, and, of course, be able to buy a flight ticket, undergo a medical exam, etc. We recommend having at least USD 20,000 (but preferably more!) to study in a public university or college, or at least USD 14,000 to study in a private one, for one student. This includes tuition fees, housing, our services, and a flight. If you want to go with your family, you need to add USD 5,000 for each additional family member.
